editors

A Quote by Francis Duffy on bankers, editors, life, newspapers, politicians, soldiers, and war

No soldier starts a war-they only give their lives to it. Wars are started by you and me, by bankers and politicians, newspaper editors, clergymen who are ex-pacifists, and Congressmen with vertebrae of putty. The youngsters yelling in the streets, poor lads, are the ones who pay the price.

Francis Duffy (1871 - 1932)
